I made this pattern for my youngest daughter a while back. It is still one of my favorites! Your version is adorable. I love those polka dots & rick rack!

I should clarify - I had a hard time finding a wide enough fabric in my stash. I made the second smallest size, which required a width of 52 inches. The largest size requires a width of 57 inches. I ended up using a 60" inch that hadn't shrunk too much. A lot of the fabrics I had my eye on for this skirt were cute quilting width fabrics.

Cute rick-rack trim, and I agree with you about regular zippers vs invisible for little ones! What fabric width(s) does the pattern call for?
